Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
aceticAcid
A molecule is a group of atoms that are joined together and act as a single unit.
(i.e. a water molecule is made of 2 hydrogen atoms tied to 1 oxygen atom: H2O.)
H20
A chemical formula (molecular formula) is the recipe for what is in a molecule.
The element symbol Letter goes before the Number of atoms, so H20 has 2 hydrogen & 1oxygen.

A structural formula is a way to show how molecules are put together. Lines represent bonds between atoms.

bonds
Atoms are held together in chemical bonds by sharing, gaining, or losing electrons.

A compound is a substance made of two or more elements.
mixture
A mixture is two or more substances found together.
salt dissolving
Solution is a very well-mixed mixture of two substances that keep their properties.
(i.e. sugar water vs. salt water)
A solvent is a liquid and solute is a solidlike a powder.
beryllium
Characteristic  properties are qualities of a substance that never change and can be used to identify the substance.
They can be physical properties and chemical properties.
crystal
Physical properties can be any property used to characterize matter and energy and their interactions. 
They can be observable using instruments or the five senses.
(i.e. crystal shape, color, texture, hardness, bends or breaks, density, resistance to water and fire, conductivity or heat or electricity, melting/boiling points)
density
Density of a substance is its mass per unit volume. (mass / volume)
Mortar Physical changes change the form of a substance, but not its identity.  (i.e. crushing, folding, freezing, boiling, dissolving, mixing, cutting, twisting )
Venter And Collins
Scientist
 Craig Venter and Francis Collins decoded the DNA molecule of several life forms, including humans.DNA is one of the largest molecules of all and holds the instructions for how to build the molecules of living things.
sequencer Technology
DNA sequencers are machines that can tear apart and read DNA molecules. They were used by Venter & Collins.
